I used to ask myself why we call Thursday with this name? or Why does Monday has this name? or even the rest of the days!? what are the secret behind those names ? Does they have a meaning ! Luckily I found the answer while I was reading a philosophy book! The Answer for all those question is as follows
The days of the week were named after the Norse gods and some giant objects, they derived originally from Greeks and Romans who named their days after their Gods..
So now who are they ?!
Sunday is the sun's day and because sun gives people the light and the warmth everyday they decided to name this day after it .
Monday is the moon's day, they thought that the moon was important to their life and to the crops so they called the day after it.
Tuesday is Tiw day or Tyr's day, Tyr is a norse God and he is the God of battle known for his sense of justice.
Wednesday is Woden's day, or Odin's day, another Norse God, he is the God of victory and the dead was one of the most powerful of them all, ppl who believed in the Norse Gods used to offer for him a scarified Human !
Thursday is named after Thor, a Norse God that had a giant hammer.
Friday is Frigg's Day. Frigg was a Norse god equal in power to Odin
Saturday named after Seater or Saturn, a Roman God for agriculture.
Always remember it is just a Mythodology (Not True)
